(PRWEB) September 14, 2011

Vidya Books LLC, multi cultural books, is proud to announce the release of the book ?This Freedom.? The novel is written by Rashmi Sharma Singh and will soon be released simultaneously as an eBook on Vidyabooks.com and an iBook on Apple. The novel is currently obtainable as a print on demand book from Ingram/ Lightning Source and Amazon.

?This novel examines the lives of a fictional household of immigrants from the Indian subcontinent, as they every single adapt to life in the U.S., and bravely turn out to be part of ?E Pluribus Unum,?? says the author Rashmi Sharma Singh. ?It explores what freedom means to this model minority and how Americanization often works in the individual lives of South Asian Americans. The multi-generational method in this novel keeps the reader?s interest, and genuinely makes strides in understanding this segment of American society.?

The author had the idea for the book much more than 20 years ago when she served on two panels at conferences held by South Asian American students at the University of California-Berkeley and Stanford University. There she observed and heard initial-hand about the dissonance and divide between the initial generation of South Asian Americans. This caused her, as an immigrant parent, to take unique notice.

?Students felt that their parents did not understand that they wanted to make their own choices regarding career and marriage," adds Singh. ?They complained that their wanting to be something other than a physician or an engineer, or to marry a person of their option, went over like a ton of bricks.?

Having taught Written and Oral Analysis, and Peace Studies to undergraduates at Sonoma State University for far more than a decade, Singh decided that she wanted to take a fictional appear at the true difficulty.

&#13

?My hope is that this book will bring about higher dialog and elevated understanding,? says Singh. ?I hope this novel elicits empathy for all immigrants from anyplace each legal and illegal. I hope this leads to a greater empathy amongst all segments of the melting pot that is American society.?

A prominent professor emeritus at Sonoma State University and author thoroughly enjoyed the novel.

&#13

?We normally read about the problems of immigrants' kids, but not much about the immigrant parents - and if we do read about them - not with much compassion. The two Thanksgiving episodes are actually moving. The interweaving of the number of stories is great,? stated Roshni Rustomji-Kerns, Professor Emerita at Sonoma State University, editor of ?Blood Into Ink", and "Living in America.?
